Lisa Donovan

Lisa Donovan


After moving to Nashville with her BFA in hand, she began waiting tables at Margot to supplement her writing income, where she met a community of people who shared her passion for food. She went on to become the Head Pastry Chef at City House and later returned to Margot as Pastry Chef before taking a break to return to her writing and to spend time with her two children. During this time she developed the community-style gatherings known as Buttermilk Road Sunday Suppers. In 2011, through a mutual obsession with antebellum recipes and techniques, and exchanged emails about food, Chef Sean Brock knew Donovan was the obvious choice for pastry chef for Husk Nashville, which opened in May 2013.
